New White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said
in his first interview since
being announced to his new role that he hoped to “refine” the
White House’s message going forward.

Scaramucci made his comments on Breitbart News’ SiriusXM program,
“Breitbart News Saturday.” 

He touched on a frequent criticism President Donald Trump makes
towards the news media, which he often refers to as “fake news.”

“The good news is that we’ve diagnosed the problem,” Scaramucci
told host Matt Boyle, Breitbart’s political editor. He tipped his
hat to Breitbart as well, saying that the outlet had “been a
great help in terms of exposure.” 

Breitbart has consistently endorsed Trump since he announced his
candidacy for president in 2015, and the outlet is known to run
coverage that heavily favors the president while sharply
criticizing his detractors. 

Elaborating on how he hoped to refine the White House’s message,
Scaramucci said that “we have enough outlets, whether it’s
Breitbart, the president’s social media feed, all of the
different apparatus that we have where people will allow us to
deliver our message to the American people unfiltered.” 

Scaramucci added that he wanted to penetrate through what he
saw as “media bias” against Trump. “Because you can look at it
objectively, frankly, and see that it isn’t fair right now,” he
said. 

Scaramucci was announced as the new White House communications
director on Friday. That same day, White House press secretary
Sean Spicer tendered his
resignation
, and multiple media reports said he did so in
protest of Scaramucci’s hiring.
